South Carolina Arts Commission


Whom We Serve

Program directors and coordinators on the Arts Commission’s team of arts professionals are assigned to specific lines of service or programs that can provide targeted help to South Carolina’s:

  • artists,
  • community arts providers,
  • educational institutions and arts education providers,
  • and local communities and non-arts groups.

The S.C. Arts Commission’s county coordinator system was replaced with a model that seeks to connect constituents with assistance based on line of service rather than location. Please see the most common areas of interest listed below.
